What a location, the food was great... special dining in a castle above the Neckar Valley, service personnel very attentive, you will love this special place where you can go either for a romantic candle light dinner or a family reunion...

This is a quite place to walk around and have a great view of the Nekar Valley area. There was plenty of parking available. It was a short walk up to the old fortification.
